Bachmann asks Iowa voters to support her campaign to 'reclaim our country'
URBANDALE, Iowa (AP) ' Republican Michele Bachmann is looking for presidential caucus support in the backyard of her childhood, imploring voters in her native Iowa to back her bid to, as she puts it, "reclaim our country."
Prospects appear bleak for the Minnesota congresswoman heading into the Tuesday night vote. But she and advisers are adamant that they will exceed expectations and not finish last.
Bachmann's mother joined her on stage Tuesday as her voice echoed through the college sports arena that serves as a caucus hub. Cities represented included her birthplace of Waterloo.
Some Republicans came up to Bachmann to share stories of attending school with her or going to the same hangouts.
